Officer gets first-hand insight into planning major event
Acting Superintendent Jerome Laws got first-hand insight into planning for a major event when he observed preparations for the recent Commonwealth Games in Britain.
Mr Laws took part in the West Midlands Police 2022 Operation Unity Observer programme for the games, which took place in Birmingham.
“Delegates visited key logistical sites and heard invaluable first-hand insights into specific areas of planning and delivery of the games,” a police spokesman said.
“With the opportunity to visit both competition and non-competition venues in Birmingham, delegates learnt about the approach to the planning operation, how the plans developed and the lessons learnt along the way.”
Some of the areas covered through the programme included resourcing, transport and logistics, business support and engagement, besides others.
